NOW RETIRED. Before going to BUCK for mass production this was produced by TOPS. There are not many of these around. New, unused, one of the low serial numbers that went to friends and family. The TOPS Hoodlum #16. Comes with original sheath and the custom Kydex sheath shown.

The Hoodlum is built for ultimate survival. Based on Ron Hood's design and built to TOPS quality standards, the Hoodlum helps ensure survival in extreme conditions. It is light enough to carry in a sheath, but heavy duty enough for any task out in the wilderness. The handle is built with a Shock Mitigation System (SMS) to alleviate shock and wasted energy when chopping. It has a large finger choil for providing control while whittling or other detailed activities. A groove is cut into the blade spine for scoring bone, bending wire, removing pots from a camp fire, or other small tasks. Also, the Micarta handles can be removed to create a spear by lashing a branch to the tang of the blade. There is an integrated hammer and lanyard hole in the butt of the handle and it comes with a heavy duty nylon sheath. The Hoodlum will serve all your survival needs from protection to food prep while out in the wilderness.
